Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Acacia Media Technologes

I undertand your points. I raise this not so much for IA sake, but to inform everyone that this boondoggle, Acacia, is out there, and, having been victimized (I paid a negotiated royalty fee for one year), I think I should share the experience. Personally, I wish to believe that somehow the process of downloading or transfering A/V content is not patentable, that it is a result of other existing technolgy (the net, PCs, MACs, html, flash, photoshop, etc...) and to lay claim to it is not right (the transfer of data, no matter what form it takes, a text file, a jpeg, an avi file, it seems to me is below and at a fundamental level, and whether it is an Audio or Video file type is moot, it's ALL data), as a result a scare tactic to keep people like myself who have been streaming for years, at bay and cow towed.
